FREEDOM AWARDS 2010
Paul Stanley of KISS was among the celebrities attending the 2010 Freedom Awards in Los Angeles on November 7th.

LOS ANGELES -- More than 27 million people are trapped in slavery throughout the world today. But there are heroes - many of them escaped slaves themselves - who risk their lives to free others from brothels, sweatshops and horrific mistreatment in modern slavery. These heroes are the Frederick Douglasses and Harriet Tubmans of our time.

Each year, the non-profit organization Free the Slaves honors the best of the best with the anti-slavery movement's highest honor: The Freedom Award.



About Free the Slaves: Free the Slaves liberates slaves around the world and helps them rebuild their lives. With its main offices in Washington and Los Angeles -- and field offices in Ghana, India and Nepal -- Free the Slaves works with grassroots groups on the frontlines of slavery today. Free the Slaves builds awareness, influences policy, and researches real-world solutions to eradicate slavery in our lifetime.

THE STAR PHOENIX
By Cory Wolfe and Cam Fuller

Rock star Gene Simmons is trading his guitar for a goalie stick.

The KISS bassist and reality TV star plans to play puckstopper during an intermission shootout next Friday when the Saskatoon Blades face the Portland Winterhawks at Credit Union Centre.

"He'll be dressing up in goalie gear from head to toe," said Brittany Loraas, the Blades' manager of game-day operations, "and during the second intermission, we'll have three guys take shots at him."

Move over Justin Bieber - Scotland's 12-year-old rock star, Kieran Robertson, would rather listen to Kiss.

Many children idolise Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, but not so many would name Paul Stanley, the anti-drugs rhythm guitarist of glam-rock super group Kiss, as their hero. Yet this is who 12-year-old Kieran Robertson wants to be.

"Kiss put on a great show and that's definitely the thing I'd like to do," said Kieran. "They have fireworks and jump about. Paul Stanley, my idol, doesn't do drugs, doesn't drink, he flies into the audience because he believes the audience and the band should be one, which is also what I think.

"A lot of people find it nervous to jump about on stage but I'm the opposite - I find it nervous to just stand still. A few people will think you're an idiot but the other five hundred think: 'This kid's pretty cool'. Once you've got a few of the girls pointing at people, you know, it pays off later."
